Stendec Crystal Fork oil is an exclusively formulated HSF fluid made from base oils and performance additives containing a radical new type of anti foaming agent. Crystal fluid is compatible with all seals and other fork components and actually increases seal life.
All grades can be mixed if required to produce a mid weight blend. Apart from offering excellent temperature stability and dampening its particularly slippy consistency also reduces fork leg stiction.

I went with this product for my 2001 Z4 Aria Forks. I have owned these forks for 12 years and never changed the oil. They have always used 7.5W so i decided since the oil change was well in need i would go for something thinner. I removed the forks from the bike and left them upside down for 24 hours to drain off all the old oil which i advise doing. My forks had a pretty lazy rebound so i adjusted that right up using the rod adjuster you get with these old forks then began the refill with this new fork oil. once topped up and pumped the forks are ready to go again. They now make a lot less noise with this fluid and the rebound is stiff and fast, ideal for my riding style of tight winding trails. Still got enough to do another oil change which will be sometime in the year 2023, but i hope to own a space ship by then.

Used this on my old Bomber Z4 aria which normally use a 7.5wt but i decided to go down to a 5wt. I flipped the forks over to drain over night then put the the new oil in next day. Rebound is a bit quicker and the fork is a bit more fluid, damping is quieter as well. Good product.

Just used on my 2001 Bomber Z4's. Had these forks for 13 years and never changed the oil! Removed the forks from my bike and took the tops off and left them to drain off upside down overnight (helped get the thicker dead oil out). I went down to the 5wt (original oil 7.5wt in forks) and it looks like the forks response has improved along with them being a lot more quieter.

Had a pretty beat up set of fox 36 vans, stripped them down and serviced the damper with 10wt, very smooth and silent now. cleaned and soaked the dust washers in this and now they are like new, the stanchions have some wear on them but I applied some of the stendec fork grease to them and now the forks feel great, smooth as butter, thoroughly recommend Stendec Crystal Fork Fluid and Stendec Fork Grease for breathing life back into your tired forks plus its soo much cheaper than fox fluid.

Tried some 2.5WT in my ageing 2005 Manitou Splice Comp 130...wow...a fork with non adjustable damping (FluidFlow) which has always felt slow and a little overdamped, has now come to life with this thinner oil (5 wt recommended as stock).
Amazing transformation...saving my old fork from the bin. ALWAYS worth a shot to tune forks with different weight oil...a very cheap lesson learned !! With 2/3 of the bottle left for at least one, maybe two, oil changes later on.

This info is indeed not on the bottle label, or on the Stendec site that I can find. If you contact Stendec directly they should be able to produce a chemical data sheet/ ascertain this viscosity rating for you.
